UNION, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Graffiti, torn Bibles and other vandalism was found in a Union County church early Tuesday morning, according to deputies.

Union County Sheriff David Taylor said furniture was damaged, swastikas and satanic phrases were spray painted on the walls and several Bibles were torn apart.

The phrase "Christ is dead, Satan is alive" was spray-painted on one wall.

Investigators said there was no sign of forced entry. The church was in the process of having Vacation Bible School this week.

Deputies said they are checking to see if the incident is connected with a double homicide that happened in Union County on July 22.

Sheriff Taylor urges anyone with information on this vandalism to contact Crime Stoppers at 864-427-0800 or the Union County Sheriff's Office at 864-429-1611.
